Monitoring an advance healthcare directive

If you lose the capacity to make certain healthcare and treatment decisions, and have a designated healthcare representative, they must make a record of any decision made that relates to your advance healthcare directive. They must do this as soon as possible and no later than seven days after the decision has been made.

If you regain capacity, your designated healthcare representative must provide a copy of this record to you. We can also request a copy of this record.

We can send someone to talk to you or your designated healthcare representative. For example, we can send a general visitor or special visitor if we receive a complaint about your designated healthcare representative or want to check that the agreement is working the way that it should.
